Children of Blessing (DVD) 神佑的孩子 (DVD)
An Education in China
Brian Keeley, Jiang Xueqin

This film follows the hardships Lahu girls face as they come down from the hills to enroll at a Chinese primary school. The Chinese students laugh as the Lahu girls who finish last in races and on tests. One girl falls ill, and is sent home; another finds out her mother has run away. The girls' teacher feels frustrated and hopeless; the school principal wishes he had never admitted them. Can the Lahu girls make it in modern-day China? And what price will they have to pay? Do Chinese schools empower or assimilate China's minority children? "Children of Blessing" takes a controversial stance on this ever sensitive question.

幾個世紀來,拉祜族,一個信奉基督的母系民族變化不大,但中國近期的經濟發展給拉祜族帶來打擊。大家都認為拉祜族將走向衰落,除非她們忘記自己的傳統,融入新的社會。該片攝製歷時一年,記錄了一批拉祜族女孩下了山,在漢族小學上學的艱辛過程。這些女孩能不能真的融入現代中國社會,她們為此要付出什麼代價?中國的學校能同化或溶化這些少數民族的孩子嗎?該片的作者對此並不樂觀。影片也直擊了當前的敏感命題:教育系統如何同化孩子的思想。
